For small/medium companies looking to simplify and track the hiring process, Applicantstack is a well priced and feature packed alternative. Its onboarding capabilities are fantastic, in its price range it has no equal.

Workable

We used Workable at a start-up which was extremely wise. We weren't hiring for 50 open requisitions, we were hiring usually for five or six requisitions at a time. The cost and functionality were so helpful that we used this platform up until we were growing exponentially. After our growth took off, it made sense to utilize a different tool (especially as expectations in measurements shifted).

Cons

  • Report customization needs work, it's tough to export the data I want in a format that doesn't require extra work after an export.
  • Support is fantastic, but hard to get a hold of. Often you need to leave a message on a voicemail and get a call back.
  • There is a strong learning curve to the interface, however once you become comfortable with it.. it's very powerful.

  • The ability to schedule interviews via Workable was great, but it was unable to pull other items from your calendar, so it was easy to end up double booked for appointments if you weren't careful.
  • The reporting leaves a bit to be desired, there is not a lot of customization for what I really needed reports on.

It's become a part of the fabric of our hiring process and we are growing like crazy! Once we have a working platform in place the cost of the change management typically far out weighs the benefits derived from the change! It's especially hard to change a process with employees who are not key stake holders, they are alway hesitant to invest time in a new product they are only going to use once in a while. With that said if something else came along with benefits far and above workable that we would gain a clear lift in productivity and capabilities we would make the change, we've done it with other parts of our tech stack

Alternatives Considered

Applicantstack offered a high level of customization for us, at a price point their competitors couldn't touch. While it's got some room for improvement in reporting, we've been able to fill every gap with custom programming at an incredibly reasonable rate.

Functional isn't as strong as other candidate following framework, yet what it does, it does well. It is extraordinary for littler organizations or the individuals who won't enlist at an abnormal state continually. I thought that it was extremely valuable for the circumstance I was in when I had it. However, my later enrolling position is substantially more entangled, and hence requires a more confounded framework.

  • As it manages our whole on boarding process, it's eliminated lost documents and filing mistakes.
  • It's opened us up to the world of social networking based recruitment.

  • Previously we had an Excel spreadsheet which meant it was very difficult to pipeline and identify future talent, Workable allows you to do this in an easy and simple way.
  • Candidates don't fall through the cracks, easy to manage.
